My 2nd stay at Pier's cabin on the Lake in Jackman.

  • 5 of 5

A small group of friends and I stay at Pier's place here on Long Pond, Lake for a Maine snowmobiling trip. The cabin has direct access to main trails that go to Jackman, Pittston Farms, Lake Parlin and The Forks. Cabin is very well equipped for staying, the wood burning stove is fantastic and always a great supply of seasoned firewood. Cabin is very well insulated and well built. Really love this place!

August Stay at Owl's Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a nice cabin on a very quiet lake to relax and enjoy the wildlife. That is exactly what we found at Owl's Cottage. The lake was beautiful, not many cabins on it. We saw moose, deer, bald eagles and loons. The kayaks were a huge plus and we spent many hours exploring the lake. The cabin was the most fully-equipped place we have ever rented. I can't think of anything you could need that was not there. Very clean and comfortable. The owner was responsive and easy to work with and the caretakers were just a mile away and were great.

The lake is very shallow at the dock so difficult to swim. A raft to swim out to would have been great.

Overall, a great place if you are looking for peace and quiet!

We had a great stay at Owl's Cottage. The home was clean, comfy, and charming. We saw the most beautiful double rainbow over the lake after an afternoon sun shower! This home is lovingly taken care of and it shows. Thanks Pier!

Perfect Getaway Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a wonderful and very relaxing week in the Owls Cottage. The cabin is newly renovated, fully and superbly equipped with appliances, cookware, dishes, etc. and leaves nothing to be desired. It is the first time we stayed at the Long Pond. In the past we usually rented a cabin in the Moose Lake/Greenville area. But the Owls Cottage is by far the best cabin we have rented in this region. Compared to the Moose Lake region the Long Pond is much more secluded and quiet but still easily accessible via Jackman, ME. We enjoyed the tranquility by watching bald eagles soaring over the water and listening to the calls of the loons. Long Ponds also provides good fishing for small mouth and yellow perch, and along the Long Pond Rd you can easily spot moose at dawn or dusk. One of our favorite spots were the two Adirondack chairs at the end of the boat dock, to have a cup of coffee in the morning or a beer in the evening to chill out, life can’t get better! Since there is no light pollution it is also a perfect place for stargazing at night. Once you get there, you’ll understand why the owners take pride of their little gem on the shore of Long Pond. As other mentioned, Pier is super nice and easy to work with. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful place with us.

If you are looking for seclusion, relaxation and getting in touch with nature. All while having EVERY luxury of home, the Owl Cottage is your getaway. We literally had the whole lake to ourselves. We saw one other man fishing the whole time we were up there. The sunrises!!! The fishing! We were catching 16" small mouths right off the dock. The use of all the property's boats made this adventure all the more enjoyable.My kids are already asking if we can go back next year. Pier is extremely friendly, accommodating, sincere and will exceed your expectations with communication, leading up to and during your stay. We stayed in mid July...Bring your bug spray. (Although, he even had that available). When Pier says, "just bring your food and your drinks" he is not kidding. If you are looking to get away from it all, you can't get any farther than this without leaving the country....literally. If you are looking for nightlife, this isn't it. Fishing, swimming, hiking, ATVing, kayaking, enjoying your family, these are the things to do in Jackman Maine. Thank you Pier. We greatly appreciate you accommodating us at such short notice and sincerely thank you for sharing your family's home away from home with us. -The Stones

Very nice cabin on the lake, owner takes pride in how the home is kept and the amenities for sure. Pier is great to work with, we stayed in the cottage in late January and the wood burning stove kept it super comfortable! Will return again and visit Jackman again, for sure staying at the Owl Cottage..

About Pier Veilleux

I am a buisness owner with over 70 employes. The name of the company is Turbo Images Inc. please see us at the cottage is our second home and we leave everything as it would be us, so people usually says when they get at the cottage that the place expect by far what the pictures were showing on the site.

Pier Veilleux purchased this cottage in 1996

Why Pier Veilleux chose Long Pond

This property in immaculous, everything is included. just bring your food-wine and enjoy one of the best relax week you will remember for long time. At the cottage there is no neighbour to the right of the cottage where you will spend most of your time, there is one neighbour to the left but they are 300 feet away and you don't see them too often and they are an old couple so very quiet. The cottage at 20 feet from the water and on a 300 feet open front water land.

What makes this cottage unique

There are 2 Kayak, one Paddle board and a 16 feet canoe. there is also a fire pit with supplied fire wood, you will spend most of yoru time on the spacious patio listening the nature or spa music. Don't be suprise to see eagle, Loon, deer, moose and many more spicies.

PS. we do not take credit card as VRBO would add a rental fee to the rent and a tax at the top of it. We have been trusting people for over 15 years of rental and never lost money so in order to keep you cost down, we accept the checks.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a peaceful,nurturing week this has been. We enjoyed the paddle boat, but especially kayaking. Ten mooses,three deers,four ruffed grouse,four loons(heard others) and five eagles,as well as four merganser ducks!The sunrise almost daily,the big bright stars at night plethora of lupines filled our senses.Maybe bestof all, were the two rainbows seen from route 15 and at Moose River.Even the trains going almost daily were fun to see and hear. We went to Big Squaw Montain ski area, climbed Owl's head at Atean Overlook in Jackman to the first lookout,went to The Falls on rounte 201/6 north in Dennistown Plantation,climded the lumber road at Plum Creek Marshall Yard complex,drove Adam Dam Road past M13,took walks, and went to Moxie Falls at the Forks, Maine's tallest waterfall. Pier and Esther,thank you for the restful eight nights at Long Pond. the bed weas firm,making for restful sleep. Thanks again. Darleen and Ron
